Hector Best Weapon Refinement

Effect of Hector's Evolved Weapon

Armads can be evolved through the Weapon Refinery but...

Pre-Evolution Post-Evolution
Armads Berserk Armads

We do not recommend evolving Armads into Berserk Armads

Armads has natural synergy with Hector's Distant Counter. When inheriting Wary Fighter, Hector will be a deadly unit in the enemy phase as he can potentially wipe out an attacking unit with a counterattack and a follow-up attack.

Berserk Armads on the other hand, has an effect identical to Wrath 3, which has overall less synergy with Hector's kit. Because of this, we recommend sticking with the standard Armads instead.

Hector is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage he deals will be equivalent to his Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Hector Strengths

Guaranteed follow-up Attacks

Hector's exclusive weapon, Armads, guarantees follow-up attacks when Hector is attacked at ≧ 80%. It synergizes very well with his A skill, Distant Counter which is further discussed below.

Can Counterattack Regardless of Range

Hector's Distant Counter allows him to counterattack enemies regardlress of range, as long has they do not have abilities that neutralize this effect. Combined with Armads and Pavise, it makes him an excellent enemy phase unit.

Buff to Armored Allies

Goad Armor grants +4 Atk/Spd to armored allies that are within 2 spaces of Hector. Unlike other skills such as Hone Armor, Hector does not need to be near the ally at the start of the turn. As long as he is near when the ally enters combat, they will enjoy the benefits of this offensive buff.

Hector Weaknesses

Low Res stat

Despite Hector's high defense, his Res stat is very low. If you are attacked by a red magic unit, you will likely be taken out in one turn. Be mindful of Hector's positoning in relation to red magic users such as his daughter, Lilina.

Low Mobility

Because he is an armored unit, he can only normally move 1 space at a time. It is recommended that you inherit skills such as Armor March or Pivot to increase L!Hector's mobility.

Weak to Armor Effective Weapons

Hector takes 1.5x damage from cavalry-effective weapons like Armorslayer+, and one blow from this type of weapon is sure to take him down. Make sure you know what weapons you are up against before hopping too far into the line of battle!

Units that can heal and buff Hector

Although Hector has generally high stats, it always helps to pair him up with characters that are able to buff and heal him. A good example is Bridal Fjorm, who can heal, neutralize penalties, and prevent enemies from using skills that grant additional actions such as Legendary Azura's Gray Waves.

If you are intending to form an all-armored team, Winter Eirika is a great option, since she is the only armored staff user in the game. This means that she can heal Hector and enjoy armor-exclusive buffs such as Armor March 3.

Units that can deal with red magic users

Despite Hector's high defense, his Res stat sits at 19 at Lv. 40. If you are attacked by a red attribute magic user, you will likely be taken out in one turn. Because of this, it is best if you pair up L!Hector with a hero that can easily take out red foes such, as Reinhardt or Ophelia.

Hector Counters

Hana Icon Hana Lilina Icon Lilina Legendary Alm Icon Legendary Alm Fallen Tiki (Young) Icon Fallen Tiki (Young)

Red magic users

Hector's Res stat is very low compared to his amazing Def. In fact, it only reaches 19 at Lv.40. This makes it hard for him to deal with magic users, especially red ones such as Idunn and Halloween Myrrh.

Anti-armor units

Units such as Hana have weapons like Armorslayer+, which deals 1.5x to armored units such as Hector. Always be mindful of Hectors positioning in relation to units that pose a threat to him.

Inheriting Distant Counter

Hector can be used to inherit the skills Distant Counter. However, Hector is a pretty powerful units. Unless you have similar units like V!Hector or L!Hector (or any other Hector), it is best that you do not fodder him off, and we recommend that you build around him instead.

Fine castle you have here. It’s not really my thing to stay cooped up all day though. Let’s get to battling!
The name of my axe is Armads. It was once wielded by a legendary berserker, you know.
Once had a chance to meet the man, believe it or not. He’s one dangerous-looking fellow.
One of my best friends goes by the name of Eliwood. We spar for fun. He even wins half the time!
I’m really bored. How about we spar for a while? Don’t worry. I’ll go easy on you, friend!
Someone once told me that knights should stand their ground, but that’s really just not my style.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
I’m no poet, friend, so bear with me here. I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words.
But before I joined you, I thought that as long as I just kept on swinging in battle…
I’d always come out on top and bring everyone back from battle, safe and sound.
Then I noticed how you, as tactician, see the line between life and death like no one else.
Not sure why, but that hit me hard. Anyway, know that I’ve got your back—long as you’ve got mine.
